I had always thought that Hamlet's "country matters" conceals an obscene
pun. Was I wrong in thinking this?

When I directed a student production years ago, the funniest part of
this bit struck me as the previous phrase, "thus makes she her great
P's."  It comes at the point where Malvolio is crouched down, first
scrutinizing the letter left on the floor of the stage.  I like to use
it as an example of what one learns by physically performing the lines.
